    Cute Little Plants

    Posted by Ramon L. Nelson on November 28, 2015

    These plants are so delightful, I bought several since they remind me so much about Lady Bugs: with their bright red backs and with white spots all over. They are on the smaller size but they do not lose any interest by taller plants beside them.
